LA art lovers are excited to welcome Frieze Los Angeles. The new annual LA contemporary art fair will debut at Paramount Pictures Studios. Premiering February 15 –17, 2019, Frieze LA will join Frieze New York, Frieze London and Frieze Masters on the international art world calendar, reflecting Los Angeles’ position as a global arts capital.
Frieze has appointed Bettina Korek as the fair’s Executive Director, working with Victoria Siddall, Director of Frieze Fairs to launch the inaugural edition of Frieze LA. In addition, curator Ali Subotnick will oversee a site-specific program of artist projects and film at the fair. Frieze New York and Frieze LA will together present a unified voice for Frieze in the Americas. “So many great artists and writers have lived and worked in Los Angeles, a city with an incredibly rich landscape of museums, galleries and art schools which play a pivotal role in the international art world. Frieze LA will add an exciting new dimension to this thriving cultural scene,” stated Victoria Siddall. “Frieze is in a unique position to create a successful fair in LA because of our experience in London and New York and our partnership with Endeavor, who have deep roots in LA and will work with us to bring a fantastic audience to the fair. As with all our fairs, Frieze LA will be at the heart of a dynamic week during which international collectors, curators and artists will come together to engage with and appreciate the city and everything that makes it great.”
More than 70 invited galleries will take part in the first Frieze Los Angeles – including a special selection of emerging spaces from the city – presenting a global cross-section of today’s most significant and exciting artists and creating an exceptional opportunity for collecting and discovery. Taking place in a bespoke structure designed by Kulapat Yantrasast, the curated programs and gallery presentations will feature figures at the vanguard of contemporary art and cultural conversation, with a strong L.A. presence. Artist projects, talks, films, restaurants and experiments in patronage and activism, will transform the movie set backlot of Paramount Pictures Studios into a symbolic cityscape where art is at the center of civic life.
Frieze Los Angeles will feature artists Doug Aitken, Judy Chicago, Beatriz Cortez, Karon Davis, Tracey Emin, Gajin Fujita, Theaster Gates, Mona Hatoum, Mike Kelley, Barbara Kruger, Tala Madani, Paul McCarthy, Sondra Perry, Allen Ruppersberg, Tino Sehgal, Lee Ufan, and Lawrence Weiner; museum leaders and patrons Kristy Edmunds, Michael Govan, Maja Hoffman, Susan Nimoy and Hans Ulrich Obrist among many others; and non-profit organizations such as Women’s Center for Creative Work and Artists 4 Democracy who will be represented on site offering insights into activism and civic engagement.
